Environmental Survey of Ogoniland: Project document
United Nations Environment Programme

In July 2006, the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) received a formal request from the Government of Nigeria for “Supervision of Remediation of the Cleanup of Oil Contamination in Ogoniland”. In order to understand the context of the request and expectations from the Government, UNEP's Executive Director sent a mission to Nigeria. Following the initial scouting mission, a technical mission was sent to the River State to meet with the local government and stakeholders to explain to them the scope of the assessment and obtain their reaction. The team undertook an aerial reconnaissance over the entire area and ground-truthing visits to selected areas. The team also visited the SPDC office to collect various documents and maps related to Ogoniland oil fields. This project document is prepared based on the inputs received during the field visits.

NIle River Basins: Review of Adaptation Best Practice Examples in the Nile River Basin Region
United Nations Environment Programme

UNEP recognizes the importance of the Nile River Basin in the context of a variable and changing climate and hence the imperative to design and pilot adaptation options at basin level. The objective of this report was to identify and evaluate best practice adaption options in response to risk, and vulnerability to climate change induced water stress as well as in the context of stated national adaptation priorities and climate change response strategies. This report contributes to the goal of building the resilience of ecosystems and economies that are most vulnerable to climate change induced water stress in the Nile Basin. The adaptation best practice examples presented in this report provide an evidence-base upon which the project on ‘Adapting to Climate Change induced Water Stress in the Nile River Basin’ can increase institutional and technical capacity to further test, replicate and scale up at the Nile River Basin level.
